Persecution of Prophets

“Persecution of Prophets”

why do
we only
speak of
the Israelites
as those
who murdered
their prophets?

we all descend
from nations
who murdered
their prophets

there was not
one prophet
sent that
did not
taste persecution

prophets were
sent to many nations

and after
the prophets
we continue
to persecute

just count
the graves
of revolutionaries
and truth-seekers,
had they
not tasted
the persecution
of prophets?

we speak
of persecution
as if we
are far
from it

yet we
ridicule and
persecute and
murder
the activists
and the righteous
no less than
those who
persecuted the
prophets
